Embedded World 2022: Silicon Labs Showcases Real-Time Location Services, AI/ML, Matter, and More
Last week, I traveled with Silicon Labs to Nuremberg, Germany, for the annual Embedded World conference. One of the premier global events for the Internet of Things, this was Embedded World's return to an in-person event, giving us the valuable opportunity to gather together with colleagues, customers, partners, ecosystem members, and friends to discuss the latest trends and happenings in embedded computing. It was my first Embedded World so I was pretty excited!
As with any conference, the first step is setting up your booth and we had a new, completely redesigned Silicon Labs booth where we focused on making it dynamic and interactive.
The booth featured three real-time demos highlighting our most recent technology breakthroughs, and the demo operators took me through them all. First up, was an interactive demo showcasing our newly announced Bluetooth Location Services Angle of Arrival and Angle of Departure solution. Here's Silicon Labs Product Manager Priyanka Sukumar showing you how it works!
Want to learn more about how Angle of Arrival is used in hospitals? Read our case study on how Borda Technology is using Silicon Labs AoA to streamline efficiency and improve patient care!
Next up, Silicon Labs Principal Field Applications Engineer Paul Benford explained how the upcoming Matter protocol will unify the Smart Home by showing two devices communicating with each other across different protocols.
And rounding out our booth demos was Silicon Labs Partner Manager Isaac Sanchez showcasing how AI and machine learning can be pushed to the edge by showing how our new MG24 can identify images in real-time on a video feed on the device, without needing a connection to the cloud!
Networking with Other Attendees
It wouldn't be an in-person conference without plenty of conversations around IoT. I was able to catch-up with several partners, distributors, and other members of the IoT ecosystem to get their view on the latest happenings and where Silicon Labs fits in. Here is what they said!
Calista Redmond, CEO, RISC-V International
Chris Rogers, CEO and Founder, SensiML
Jan Jongboom, Co-Founder and CTO, Edge Impulse
Karsten Gotte, Head of R&D, Building and Home Automation Solutions Europe, ABB
Mika Jasberg, VP of Component Business, CoreHW
Mohamed Awad, VP of IoT and Embedded, Arm
Shelby Schurrenberger, Director of Global Supplier Marketing, Arrow Electronics
It was great to be able to see and, as a first-timer, meet many of these fellow IoT travelers in person, and I can't wait to reconnect at the next event! And up next is...
